The Gus Craig Award was introduced by the Salvation Army in 1998. The award is intended to recognize longtime residents who have contributed to the community and upheld the ideas and morals of The Salvation Army.

American biologist Leroy Hood once said, "Don't underestimate the power of your vision to change the world. Whether that world is your office, your community, an industry or a global movement, you need to have a core belief that what you contribute can fundamentally change the paradigm or way of thinking about problems."

Before his passing in 2008, A.H. "Gus" Craig, Jr., past owner of Craig Funeral Home, was a big supporter of many local causes and organizations. In the early 1990s, to honor Gus Jr., the Salvation Army created the "Gus Craig Award" to recognize longtime residents of the community that give selflessly to others.
